To be honest, I'm not sure what was in the 2wd, I don't remember lol.

I wish I had a VIC, but there are times I'm glad I don't have one.

I can go back to the JY on Monday for you if you need that tray?? Let me know

I would honestly go to the JY and get a set. All you need is a ratchet, long extension and a 1/2" socket.

It is about a 5 min job from start to finish.

I also found out that there is no better feeling than throwing junk old worn out parts across the shop into the scrap pile. And driver side top shock mount is a pita

Yes, yes it is. Idk how the DT's go on, but on billsteins, in order to keep the shaft from spinning, you stick an allen head in the top of it and turn the nut with a wrench, in my case, a standard non-ratcheting one. Tell me that ain't a *****.

Yeah I usually use a chain wrench on the shock body and ratcheting box end on the shock.

OT: buying black primer today to paint my now finished roof rack, the hood of one , and the rear fender of the other. Which means I also have to beat, sand, bondo and then sand the fender again.

Woman need to understand that we need our toys, if not we get bored, then we get in trouble. It's the same as when we were kids. Thank god for my wife, she gets it, even though it didn't happen immediately. Been married goin on 15 yrs now, best of luck and congrats!
